What is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual packs of top-notch servers. Each particular service group produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is why the web hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, many servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will work perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good examples of custom built cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Besafe1st Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
